Breakfast At Be Our Guest

Be Our Guest is such a beautiful place to dine at Magic Kingdom. I was thrilled to hear that Be Our Guest will now be open for breakfast!! I can not wait to visit in May and try the delicious croissant doughnut! While the breakfast is a little pricey I feel like it is worth it because you are dining in such a beautiful castle. Breakfast for adults is $19.99 and children under age 9 are $11.99. All entree's include an assorted pastries basket.

Here's a look at the new breakfast menu at Be Our Guest:



Kids Meals includes a small milk or bottled water. However, Minute Maid juice boxes or Nesquik chocolate milk are available upon request. This is good to know because my children love chocolate milk :) 

Here is the delicious croissant doughnut topped with banana caramel sauce and a side of fresh fruit

Here is the assorted pastries that are included with your entree. The cinnamon bun looks yummy!

Guests can order upon arrival at Be Our Guest with their MagicBands or prior to arriving online. Guests will be given a magic rose who ordered online. 

Check back in May to see my detailed review of our breakfast at Be Our Guest.

Best Disney Resorts For Larger Families (+5)

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Green. Enjoy the ride as we share the best Disney resorts for larger families (+5).

My family consists of my three children and myself and my husband making us a family of 5. Occasionally when traveling it will be difficult for us to find a hotel room that will sleep a family of 5. Most standard rooms in hotels accommodate a family of 4 unless you get two connecting rooms which doubles your price. We typically stay at Embassy Suites because they do allow 5 people in a room. I absolutely love that some Disney's resorts will accommodate a family of 5.

Last spring we stayed at Disney's Polynesian Resort which is a deluxe resort located on the monorail. The resort is absolutely beautiful! We had paid for a standard room however at check in we were upgraded (maybe because it was my daughter's birthday?!) to an amazing pool and water view room. We were given lei necklaces and a resort map upon check in. My children also received coloring books and crayons. Our room was located in the Somoa building which I had requested. This building is perfectly located beside the pool and across from the beach area. With small children I knew we would be spending a lot of time at the pool so I was hoping to be as close as possible.


The view from our balcony was amazing!

this was our amazing view from our balcony

The beds are super comfy and if you look closely you can see my little one taking a nap :)

This couch can convert to the perfect bed for a child. You could even squeeze two children on the couch bed.

In room coffee maker

Plenty of space in the mini fridge for drinks and snacks

The bathroom was huge with plenty of storage for wet swim suits

If you run out of soap/shampoo/conditioner be sure to ask for more 

sparkling clean bath tub/shower

Huge closet with a safe. Our umbrella stroller even fit inside of the closet which was nice.

How cute is this lamp in the room?! The rooms are decorated so nicely!

I would highly recommend the Polynesian Resort. It is so nice to stay at a resort on the monorail and the resort offers many things to do. Guests can enjoy the pool, waterslide, splash area and the beach. There are also boats available for rental. The Polynesian Resort boasts some of my very favorite restaurants, O'hana, Kona Cafe and the Luau! To read my Kona Cafe dinner review visit this post and this post to read about the Luau. 

O'hana offers a really fun character breakfast that you should not miss! Characters include Mickey Mouse, Lilo and Stitch and Pluto. The food is really great and served family style. There is no buffet or menu to choose from. The servers bring each table coffee, pog juice (amazing!) and fresh fruit and a bread basket. The main course consists of Mickey waffles, bacon, biscuits, sausage, eggs and potatoes which is all you can eat. They will bring more food if you ask :)

delicious bread basket

fresh fruit

Tons of yummy food

Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus Travel Kit Giveaway

Spring is finally here, and I'm teaming up with Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus to share five travel hacks that you'll love, along with a great giveaway offer. One lucky winner will take home a Travel Pack from Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus valued at $150 (including a $50 Target gift card!)

Five Travel Hacks You'll Love

Five travel hacks you'll love (especially #2) - and a giveaway! 1. Roll; Don't Fold As you pack, roll your clothes instead of folding them. You'll be able to fit up to two times the amount of clothing by rolling them as you would by folding them. 2. Pack your "Iron" And by iron, we mean Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus. The 3 oz travel size meets airline standards. Slip it into your carry-on bag, and with a simple spray, you'll be wrinkle free all trip long. (It's also a great fabric refresher if you have to wear your clothes more than once on vacation.) Click here to read more and grab a coupon. 3. Bring an Empty Water Bottle After you get through security, several airports have filtered water stands to fill your bottle. You'll also find that most airport cafes will gladly fill your water bottle as well. 4. Snap a Picture If you're checking your luggage, snap a picture of your suitcase contents before you leave the house. If the airline loses your luggage, you'll be able to use the picture to prove the value of the contents. 5. BYO Blanket Blankets on airlines are hard to come by these days - and they're not always washed between flights. If you tend to get cold on planes, or you're going to be flying overnight, pack your own blanket to stay comfortable.

Enter to Win a Travel Pack from Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus

One lucky winner will receive a travel pack valued at $150, including a travel tote, a Tervis Tumbler, Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus and a $50 Target gift card. Giveaway ends at midnight on Friday, March 20, 2015. Open to US and Canada. Complete the form below to enter. Good luck!

Planning For My Disney Vacation

Please join me as I plan my family of five's next Disney World vacation. Over the next few months I am going to be sharing details about our upcoming vacation. We are yearly visitors to Disney World and this year we are super excited because the children's grandparents are going to come with us! They will be staying off property at a nearby hotel. Please leave me a comment and let me know if you have dined at one of these restaurants that we have made ADR's at. I'd love to hear your experiences.


I have been busy making all of our ADR's and mapping out which parks we will visit on specific days. So far the line up for ADR's consist of a character breakfast at my favorite restaurant---O'hana :) And we are going to be having dinner for the very first time at Chef's De France in Epcot. I am excited to experience this meal, the menu looks delicious and I have yet to read a bad review. We are also going to be dining at Fulton's Crab House for the very first time. I have wanted to dine here for many years and we finally decided to splurge and have dinner there this year. Now that the children are a little older I think they will be much better behaved. That was one of the reason's we had yet to dine at Fulton's Crab House because it is more of a 'fancy' restaurant and I would hate for a screaming baby to ruin someone's dinner. We are also going to have dinner in the Magic Kingdom at Tony's Town Square. I love Italian food and I also love that we can sit outside on the adorable patio with a view of Main Street from the restaurant.




We will be celebrating both of my girl's May birthdays during our Disney World vacation. I went ahead and ordered a super cute Princess themed birthday cake to be delivered as a surprise for the girls at dinner. Visit Disney's Floral and Gifts website to check out the amazing surprises available for celebrations http://disneyworld.disneyfloralandgifts.com/home.do I am also planning to surprise the girls with a new DVD and princess costume. The DVD will come in handy for the long 12 hour drive home after the vacation :) And they can wear the new princess costumes at Disney World as well as for playing at home. I try to keep things simple and on a budget. I always avoid purchasing princess costumes at Disney World because they are just so pricey. I always purchase costumes at http://momapprovedcostumes.com/ because they are machine washable and my children love them because the costumes are not scratchy!

Here's my littlest one in her Mom Approved Costume :) 


Leave me some comments with your personal experiences if you've dined at Fulton's Crab House, Tony's Town Square or Chef's De France. This will be my very first time to have dinner there and I'd love to hear your thoughts :)
